Animation developed to explain Youth Physical Development Model

Mon, 09 Jan 2017

Sports Coach UK and Sport Scotland have developed a short animation detailing the 'Youth Physical Development Model' and what this means for the development of 'Fundamental Movement Skills'.

This model was developed by Dr Rhodri Lloyd and Dr Jon Oliver of Cardiff Metropolitan University; recognised as two world leading experts in the field. This 'Youth Physical Development Model' is based on evidence that shows that youth participants of both genders are responsive to training throughout childhood and adolescence. Coaches really can make a difference at all stages of development.

This video brings to life the 'Youth Physical Development Model' by defining each term used in the model and explaining the differences between the male and female versions.

The Sports Coach UK ‘Fundamentals of Movement’ workshop gives coaches a full understanding of this model and fundamental skills coaches can include in their coaching sessions.
